In a new report, TMZ stated that Prince’s family members are working on a reality tv show that will “focus on how their lives have changed since [Prince] died.”
The show has a production company on board but it is still in the early stages of development, with no deal to air yet.
The report comes following the estate’s decision to sue George Ian Boxill, the producer of the Deliverance EP that was supposed to be released this past Friday but was not. The estate claims that Boxill is violating a confidentiality agreement that states “all recordings he worked on with the pop star would remain Prince’s sole and exclusive property,” and that he “would not use any recordings or property in any way whatsoever,” as the agreement explicitly states that Boxill is to “return any such recordings or property to Prince immediately upon request.”
“Instead, Mr. Boxill maintained copies of certain tracks, waited until after Prince’s tragic death, and is now attempting to release tracks without the authorization of the Estate and in violation of the agreement and applicable law,” the suit concludes.
The Deliverance EP is a six-song project made up of unreleased material from the Purple One. The title track from the EP had dropped prior to its release but has since been removed following the suit.
In that same report from TMZ, it is also stated that family wants to retain the Deliverance EP so that it can debut on the future reality TV show.
